How I learned to knit
I learned to knit as a teenager when my English teacher was expecting. Al the girls inmy class decide to give her a baby shower in class.The few boys in the class helped with the decoration and drinks and chips. I bought yellow yarn and Learn to Knit booklet and needles.
I picked the easiest item in the booklet and started. It was a baby blanket with a stockinette background with purled outline boxes in graduated sizes going from large to small in center and going from small to large at the other end of the blanket. After she had the baby, I got a card from her, saying that her little boy enjoyed laying on the blanket and feeling the texture of the purl stitches on the smooth stockinette background.

Many years later I picked up my needles again and had to relearn how to cast on again but it all came back after I found this forum and Knitting paradise forum.
Now I have branched out into making gloves with a circular needle using the Magic Loop.
